Beethoven's Eroica was a seminal moment in musical history when everything changed. That according to Matthew Savery, musical director and conductor of the Wyoming Symphony who will present a talk on Beethoven's master work this Wednesday March 14th in advance of the performance by the Wyoming Symphony on Saturday.

"It was mostly Beethoven's genius and his own visionary, being a visionary for music where he just kind of came out and broke all the rules and took us down a whole new course."

Savery says with Eroica Beethoven shifted instrumental music from being merely a pleasing experience to something that can be a vehicle for the profound.

Savery's presentation happens 7 p.m. Wednesday in Durham Hall in the Aley Fine Arts Building, at Casper College and is free of charge.
